who is now a senior fellow at the foundation for the defense of democracy. you have these mass rallies across egypt. do you think that the army got the mandate that they wanted when they called for this day of action? >> i suspect that the general would be satisfied with almost any demonstration that came out on his behalf. i think it is clear that they want to crack down on the brotherhood. they need as much popular support as they can get for that and for good cause. i think that this represents still the majority of the population. the military is probably backed by a minority of the population. >> isn't this a risky strategy when the country seems so divided? >> and the generals view, it is is the only strategy they have. they're looking to keep them in a state of herman and contests. they are trying to intimidate the brotherhood. >> what do you make of these charges, that he conspired with hamas. i think they are trumped up. have known about this for quite some time. they could have used to disqualify him from running from the presidency. a really means for them to try to intimida

. just last month the judge agreed with the defense and ordered prosecutors if they had it to hand over specific evidence, documents relating to specific damage to national security. >> okay. chris, thank you. jake, here's my other big question because really if you read the papers this morning, the headlines, this could be precedent setting for information that is leaked that is given to investigative journalists. let me read you something. this is what we saw on wikileaks. they tweeted bradley manning's convictions relate to espionage. basic guide to honest reportage, manning has not been found guilty but he has been convicted of supplying information to the press. i mean, are there -- it goes both ways, i suppose, because he's acquitted of the heaviest offense that could have sent him to life in prison yet at the same time are journalists fully breathing that sigh of relief? >> well, as you say, the charge of aiding the enemy because of the idea, the concept that by providing information national security, confidential or secret information to the press the enemy can read it. the ide

. >> brian, the thing i think links what bill o'reilly said on his program last night and ray kelly's defense of his record is the idea that the best thing you can do for young african-american men, young african-americans in general is have a very intense law and order state that is very aggressive about policing and putting wrongdoers in jail because the victims of those wrongdoers are, themselves, african-american, and you have spent your adult career working in the criminal justice system. my question to you is, does that argument have purchase with you? >> no, it really doesn't. it's a distraction. trayvon martin wasn't killed because he didn't have two parents who loved him. he wasn't killed because of some social deficit or some cultural deficit. he was killed because of a presumption of guilt. all over this country, we're allowing black and brown children to be burdened with the presumption of guilt so they live their whole lives always being suspected. we had the president of the united states acknowledging his own dealings with this presumption of guilt. when anyone says that's not

a case against the other shooters. the judge ruled they fired in self-defense and said, "the law would appear to allow a person to seek out an individual, provoke them into a confrontation, then shoot and kill him if he goes for his gun. it is very much like the wild west." one of the defense attorneys added, "you can't pick or choose who's going to benefit from a law." advocates of stand your ground tend to argue the law increases public safety, but when the courts are saying it creates a wild west, acknowledging that fact as they set killers free, it's hard to take the notion of public safety seriously. the verdict in the george zimmerman trial two weeks ago might be the most high-profile example of stand your ground's unintended consequences, but it is just one of many in the eight years since then-governor jeb bush signed stand your ground into law. 13 days ago in the wake of the zimmerman verdict, a group of protesters marched into the florida state capitol, to the reception area outside governor rick scott's office. the latest sheriff of florida's wild west and those prosecutors

justify shooting an unarmed person as self-defense. since your state became the first to adopt stand your ground in 2005, the number of what's termed as justifiable homicides tripled from 12 to 35 per year, between 2005 and 2010. that's an increase of 283%. are you hearing us yet, governor?! what are those people outside your office, what they're trying to get you to hear is that it's going to take a lot more than last year's quickly assembled task force to show them that you take their concerns around this law seriously. they want real action, that shows you understand this law is unacceptable and should not be used to justify the death of an unarmed teenager. the problem does not begin with the tragedy that happened to trayvon martin. the problem does not even begin with the actions of george zimmerman. governor, the problem begins and remains with the stand your ground law. sincerely, melissa.

the secrets with the enemy. the defense claimed manning first set out to reveal abuses by the u.s. military in iraq. in a pretrial statement to the court, manning admitted he leaked this classified video of an apache helicopter attack in iraq that killed a number of insurgents and two innocent civilians and said he was troubled by the american crew joking about the killings. >> the most alarming aspect of the video to me, however, was seemingly delightful bloodlust that they appeared to have. for me, this seems similar to a child torturing ants with magnifying glasses." >> reporter: wikileaks owner julian assange says their owners will fight the conviction on the charges. >> it's a serious abuse, and it will mean the end of national security journalism in the united states as we know it. >> reporter: and legal experts predict manning's convictions will have a chilling effect on future leakers. >> the government is very, very serious about protecting the status of classified information, and people who disseminate it are playing with fire. >> all right. >> that was nbc's jim miklaszewski rep

as secretary of defense being lambasted for saying you go to war with the army that you have. he was absolutely right. it sounded callous at the time but would you have to do is remain flexible. one of the things i had run into in researching this story and doing the story was if other opponents know that counterinsurgency is difficult for us and we are moving away from that and not applying mraps mraps will they adopt the strategies to hit us in our weak spot. it's absolutely true. for that reason i think a lot of the lessons that were learned in iraq and afghanistan despite some distaste for warfare need to be maintained. i'm not a big fan of getting rid of all but mraps that we spend tens of millions of dollars on. we may need them again but the idea that you are training for the last war at least in this case is not what they are doing. they are trying to train for what they think would be another war instead of a small war or counterinsurgency. i would like to think that they are flexible enough to be able to do both to preserve those lessons but the really scary emerging threats are happe

that did not work in sanford be, florida. dealing with stand your ground. dealing with the self-defense that lines up people who want to not do right can use to avoid prosecution. but one thing we have to concede is that we're not getting killed with a fist. we're getting killed with guns in the wrong hands and bullets, and you have to ask yourself where are all these coming from. so the justice working group and the congressional black caucus, we're hearing all of that, is going to to the hard questions -- ask the hard questions, produce legislation and also soon the resources -- seek the resources. because there's nothing wrong with asking, as bobby has said, let children be our priority from the federal level that deals with education and summer jobs. and i will leave to the experts about how the gangs are moving around, whether it's turf, whether it's drugs or whether it's one gang against another. but we do know seem are dying. and i think we need to leave here with the burden of the members who put together an omnibus, an emergency plan and funding. and i can tell you that no one
